Road demand review opens

The Commons transport committee is calling for submissions to an inquiry into the UK's major road network launched this week.

It will consider current and future demand for the network of motorways and trunk and principal roads that serve strategic transport needs. Evidence can be submitted until 14 January.

The committee will examine how capacity can best be used, the case for expansion, alternative strategies and the implications of climate change commitments.

It will also investigate increased demand from population and housing growth points and whether this can be met through other modes of transport, new technology or land-use policies.
